Any performer must believe that they are an actor or actress playing the part of a magician. Each "Magician" must be a performer first so that they can entertain their audience. Some of the younger people who aspire to be magicians should study acting, theater, scenery, dance to help them become better performers. The magic is only an end to finish the process of being an entertainer. If you don't entertain, you just did some tricks for some people and are not a true magician. I have studied theater, art stage performing, music and after fifty years of performing, I am still learniong and perfecting my craft.
